  1. Techmarine 01

    Ok so keeping in line with my marine phase and trying out different techniques, i was asked to write a tutorial for how i painted my blue armour. I thought i'd try it with red on the techmarines armour. Firstly was a watered base colour of scab red trying to leave the darker areas with as much black base colour as i could.  Then following the thin layers of scab red i added slightly more thin layers of scab red to the edges and the highlighted areas. Following this i added some blood red ...
  2. Hi There!

    Hello,Welcome to my Coolminiornot.com blog! Thanks for the look.First off I am a returning minature gamer. Seems my boys brought me back to gaming. ANd I found out that over the years I could actually paint. Now mind you... Im not too the level of most I have seen here but I am improving at a scary rate. The newer techniques that were so guarded in the past are layed before us at all turns on the web. Also, I have found a few (younger than me) friends and merchants who will help me learn. It doesn't ...

  5. Honour Guard 05

    Well i finally pulled up the courage to do the freehand work. The symbol on the cloak im really happy with, it looks nice and doesn't over do it on the model, i redid a little of the lettering on the banner to make them a bit more legible. So taking a break to let the glue and green stuff dry on the backpack. Will finish it all off tomorrow, i will eventually make a much more scenic base for him when i finish the rest of the honour guard. Anyway any helpful comments and criticisms welcome.Here is ...

  7. Honour Guard 04

     So after a busy weekend in Manchester to complete my write ups, i managed to get some painting done finally today. I spent quite alot of time working on the gold nmm and the blade of the sword. I have to still work on the freehand on his cloak and do a backpack for him, and the small detail between the blade and the hilt of the sword. But generally progress is going fairly well and im really taking my time to paint my minis now. I might touch up on a few things again once its all done when ...

  9. Honour Guard 03

    So i managed to get the bulk of the banner painted and its looking quite smooth although some of the top scrolls need touching up but i've only just started on them and im a bit too tired to carry on, hopefully it won't take me too much longer to finish the whole model. I love the small detail on the banner itself, it makes the painting somewhat easier in a way. I will be doing some sort of free hand work on his cloak and probably get some matt varnish to add to the glaze of red i want to apply ...
  10. Honour Guard 02

    Ok another quick update, but looking at the model now i need to clean up the head area a little and maybe reduce the amount of highlighting there but im pretty happy with the overall look at the moment. Anyway comments and criticisms welcome.
